Top 5 Reasons To Use Best-In-Class Tools Over Integrated Solutions

Integrated solutions for CFD and CAE tools provide a convenient framework for engineers using simulation in their design process. Although integrated tools like ANSYS Workbench and COMSOL Multiphysics are designed to provide flexibility on solution methodology and analysis, there are significant benefits to using best-in-class tools for design and optimization. Top 5 Reasons to Use Best-in-Class Tools for Design and Optimization More flexibility – Engineering practices are evolving over time and […]

Bring on the “a-ha moments” with CFD software

It’s the way things usually work: CFD engineers using numerical simulation to study fluid flow in a reservoir will typically first approach the problem by looking for two main things: what they know, and what they don’t know. After all, that’s what simulations are for, right? Well, not so fast. Allow us to explain . . . Visualization software shows you three things: 1. Visualization software shows you what you […]

Simulation data management: A status report

By Mike Peery Tecplot co-founder Recently, I was reading a very good article about Simulation Data Management (SDM) by Mark Norris of the NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Working Group. I realized the article is actually a very good status report on the practice of Simulation Data Management. In it, he reports that less than half of all companies who could benefit from SDM are using it. And those that aren’t […]

Simulation data management: A little or a lot

At Tecplot, Inc., we’ve had many conversations with our engineering customers about how they use CFD in their day-to-day work. From these conversations, we’ve found that CFD engineers fall into two groups: Exploratory CFD and Production CFD. Both groups can benefit from a robust simulation data management software tool. By listening to customer needs, Tecplot, Inc. has been able to meet the needs of both groups with Tecplot Chorus, which […]
